First, the girls and I raced over to the library for the Halloween parade. Raced over after some rollerskating in the parking lot time, that is.
We threw their costumes on (skeleton bride and zombie cheerleader) and trick-or-treated at the local businesses lining Townsend avenue. "GIMMIE CANDY!" Maggie joyously exclaimed at the first businesses. Her sweet, genuinely enthusiastic voice, filled with all the joy of childhood, made the statement sound adorable, not bratty and demanding. Everyone within earshot laughed, but I reminded her to say "Trick or Treat." (I pretend she's not mine in situations like this and just call her "Little girl." Sue me.)
Then it was on to our friends the Campbells for some pizza and trick or treating on their street. Erik may have stolen Craig and Elizabeth from me, but I can retaliate by stealing Jay and Gish. Ha!! Take that Erik!! They're MY friends now!
Ok, they're Maggie and Nina's friends. Here are Maggie and Rose:
|They did more candy-handing-outing than trick-or-treating|
I have no pictures of Grace and Nina. Sorry! But here are our pumpkins:
